A. Miliou*, S. Kolle, J. Clarke, M. Demetriou
The biomass and species composition of the landings from 7 coastal small scale fisheries vessels were compared over a 5 month period in SW Samos, eastern Aegean Sea. The quantitative composition of the landings was assessed for the different metiers: trammel net, small gillnet, long line, boat seine and a locally practiced metier, “kalami”. The total landing weight of this fleet between June and October was 14.3 tons, dominated by the catches of the small gill net métier (52.7%).
